Sideshow and Tell

This is the stuff that hooked me: Sideshow's Lord of the Rings line, produced in conjunction with Weta. Arriving in waves during the height of the hysteria surrounding the films, this range of collectibles encompassed several genres, from 1/6 scaled statues to 1/4 scale busts and helmets to meticulously-detailed environments, all designed and sculpted by the team of artists responsible for the creation of the trilogy. The horse-and-rider statues in the group are particularly grand, possessing a dynamic elegance that has rarely been seen elsewhere.

 

Great stuff. The Sideshow/Weta collectibles proved to be the gateway drug that sucked me into collecting other ranges.
